I have a love hate relationship with fall. I would have a full love relationship with fall if it were 75 degrees every day and if it didn't seem like winter was just waiting around the corner. I love racking the leaves, picking pumpkins, trick or treat, apple picking, baking, all the quintessential fall activities. I just hate that it goes so quickly and before we know it winter is here.
Currently I am hating that the elections are just days away and I haven't figured out which politician is lying less that the other. I just don't get why politicians are still using mud slinging techniques. All it seems to do is disenchant people with the political process. Well, maybe I just answered my own question. We as a people can't allow our selves to get away from the political process before or after we have voted. Even after the poles have closed we as a people have to watch the politicians. We have to always be sure they are doing the will of their constituents, not the will of their pocket books. We all have to remember We are the boss of them, not the other way around.
To end on a happy note, tomorrow is beggars night! I love seeing all the creative costumes. I love eating the candy and talking with my neighbors. I look froward to this every year. Beggars night, a good excuse to get out doors.
Have fun!
